Months after Showtime's Shameless came to an end after 11 seasons (and a 12th mini season deemed as the Hall of Shame), fans around the globe are hoping for a future reunion between Cameron Monaghan and his cast mates, including William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, and Justin Chatwin. But unfortunately, Monaghan is not on board with the idea of a reboot.

During an interview with Hollywood Life earlier this month, Monaghan weighed in on the possibility of the series returning for a spinoff, of sorts.

“I would never do something that would erase the original,” Monaghan told the outlet on September 12 of his refusal to participate with a reboot. “That being said, if there was a way to continue the story at some point, I would consider it. I think that we all need to have a few years. That being said, it could be interesting to find the characters in a different place at a different time and maybe recontextualize things in a new world."

"Who knows what things are going to look like 5, 10, 15 years from now?" Monaghan continued.

According to the actor, who has also starred in memorable roles in Gotham and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, he felt that Shameless, which premiered on Showtime in 2011, "was pretty topical" and believes a continuation of the series' storyline could happen at some point in the future.

On the show, Monaghan portrayed the role of Ian Gallagher, who ultimately found love with the character known as Mickey Milkovich.

In April, during an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Shameless showrunner John Wells teased fans of a potential future revival of the hit series.

“Yeah, never say never, right?” he shared with the outlet. “I could have written this show forever. But I understand. Showtime’s been such a great partner on the show since the beginning, so supportive, and they felt it was time for us to be done, so I have to respect that opinion. But, yeah, I could have done it forever.”

Also during his interview with Hollywood Life, Monaghan was asked who he felt was the best Joker of all time.

“It’s a very democratic answer but I think it’s actually true. Everyone brings something great to the table,” he said. “I’m personally impartial to Jack Nicholson because I think he’s the guy that really set the tone. But I also love Mark Hamill. He did all the stuff for the animated stuff. Heath Ledger was the guy I first saw do the role as a kid who absolutely blew me away."
